the Six Years of Returning (Darius)
|Daniel 11:11-12, Page 3|
(Repeating) Daniel 11:11 And provoked, the radical Islamic organization Al-Qaeda shoots forth and battles with Russia and China and their gathered mighty host, but Russia’s and China’s host is given into Al-Qaeda’s hand.
Daniel 11:12 The mighty host is removed [by the forces of the radical Islamic organization Al-Qaeda], and myriads fell before the Al-Qaeda onslaught, but [in spite of this victory against a superpower] Al-Qaeda cannot prevail [in gaining their goal of global control].
Bible, KJV Translation:
(Repeating) Daniel 11:11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.
Daniel 11:12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.
Significant Words and Comments:
Signifiicant Words in Daniel 11:12 (4 November 2007):
Taken away, lifted, from nasa’ [from James Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary entry H5375] is used only in Daniel 11:12, 14.
Multitude, a very tumultuous crowd, from hamown [H1995/H1993] meaning, “a noise, tumult, crowd,” as discussed in notes on Daniel 11:10.
Lifted up, raised, is from the primary root ruwm [H7311] meaning “to be high acting, to rise or to raise,” and is used only three times in Daniel 11-12 [11:12, 36; 12:7].
His heart is from lebab [H3824/H3823] describing the heart or core of a person or of anything. Lebab is from the primary root verb labab [H3823] properly meaning “to be enclosed (as if with fat); by implication, to un-heart, (in a good sense) transport (with love), or (in a bad sense) stultify.”
Lebab is used only four times in Daniel 11-12 [11:12, 25, 27, 28].
Shall cast down is from the primary root verb naphal [H5307] meaning “to fall,” that is, to transition from a higher place to a lower for any reason, and is used only in Daniel 11:12, 19, 26. This may be saying that Al-Qaeda creates such upheaval that multitudes are killed, or it may simply be saying that the lies and deceptions promoted by this group cause many to reject Yehuveh’s appeal to return to His true ways and they, thereby, fall from His truth and instruction.
Naphal is used to describe everything from Cain’s fallen countenance [Genesis 4:5-6], to falling in fear or worship (Leviticus 9:24), to falling in death (Numbers 14:32), to simply throwing stones (Numbers 35:23).
Psalms 5:10 uses it of making poor decisions: “Destroy thou them, O Elohim; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against Thee.”
Naphal is the Hebrew word used in Psalms 91:7 to describe both spiritual demise and physical death: “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.”
Ten thousands, or myriads, is from ribbow [H7239/H7231] and rather than being a specific count, describes an indefinitely large number. Naphal is used only here in Daniel 11-12.
Not is from lo’ [H3808], permanent negative, as noted by Daniel 11:4.
Strengthened, or prevail, used only here in Daniel 11-12, is from the primary root `azaz [H5810] meaning “to be stout.”
The final phrase, “shall not be strengthened by it,” or “shall . . . not prevail,” is from the primary root `azaz [H5810] meaning “to be stout,” and translated harden, impudent, prevail, strengthen (self), be strong. This clearly states that though the high officials of the Al-Qaeda will be greatly encouraged by this conquest, nonetheless overall they will not be able to prevail in gaining global dominance.
